Don’t Retire!

What a day that was – in the park at 9am for many volunteers ‘working’ throughout the day getting the park ready for the weekend events…….. and then meeting the Yorkshire in Bloom judge this evening for a tour of the park – home at 8.30pm!

Today eventually saw more than 40 volunteer hours put into the park by FoSP volunteers – but well worth it.

Note to self: Don’t retire – you never get a day off!

Parking for the Proms in the Park:

This weekend is a big one in the park……… there is a big football tournament as well as the Proms in the Park concert.

Web site sidebar 2Proms parking: This will be at a premium  as there will be even more events taking place in the park on this day. We recommend using the industrial estate slightly up towards the racecourse – on the left. Then make the short walk across to the park.
